Optus are now starting to roll out there 5G home broadband and mobile network and prices start from only $70 per month.
This is great news for anyone looking for an NBN alternative or who NBN is not currently available plus if it you don’t receive the speeds promised by Optus, you can instantly break contract without any cancellation fees.
There are a couple of plans being offered, either a 24-month contract or month-to-month with a $200 installation fee and the contract plan works out to a total minimum spend of $1680, but you can currently get the first month free.
Here’s what Optus says on its website:
If at any time during the term of your 5G Home Broadband plan you’re not satisfied that you are getting download speeds of at least 50Mbps, or you cannot receive a 5G signal, simply report the issue that you are having to us and we will investigate the issue and check if it’s within the terms of our 50Mbps Satisfaction Guarantee (Guarantee). If it is, we will confirm your eligibility to cancel your contract without cancellation fees under this Guarantee.
If a failure with the service does not amount to a major failure, you are entitled to have the failure rectified in a reasonable time. If this is not done you are entitled to cancel the contract for the service and obtain a refund of any unused portion. You are also entitled to be compensated for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage from a failure in the service.
At the moment, there is very limited coverage with Optus 5G so to be eligible for 5G home broadband, you have to live in an area covered by Optus 5G. To check if your suburb has 5G, you can use the Optus’ availability checker (simply enter your address to find out).
